activities, or other changing information, usually of people and often in a surreptitious manner. It most usually refers to observation of individuals or groups by government organizations, but disease surveillance , for example, is monitoring the progress of a disease in a community. The word surveillance comes from the French word for "watching over". The word surveillance may be applied to observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment (such as CCTV cameras), or interception of electronically transmitted information (such as Internet traffic or phone calls). It may also refer to simple, relatively no- ...
Technology & Marketing Law Blog: Online Publishers, Advertising ...
" This panel focused on the role of online publishers in the marketing-and-privacy discussions. Most of the privacy angst has focused on other intermediaries in the advertising ecosystem, such as ad networks. However, online publishers play a crucial but under-discussed role in privacy considerations as well. I made the following three points in my brief introductory remarks: 1) Our privacy regulatory architecture of "notice and choice" requires that publishers actually give their consumers notice and choice, but I'm routinely flummoxed by publishers who balk at doing both. Publishers often rely on dense ... market research, surveys and trends
Freedom Disability Reader Poll Online Advertising and Privacy
You’ve been on the Internet searching for and sharing information about migraines with your Facebook friends.

Facebook admits giving data to advertisers
Realising that advertising and privacy concerns go hand in hand, Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg slipped into marketeer mode by making the rather grandiose claim that "We [Facebook] think making the world more personal and social is having a profound impact on the way we relate to the people, communities and institutions around us." Indeed, never before has so much personal information been so blatently up for grabs to the highest bidder than after the rapacious crew at Facebook got their paws on it. Making the case for those who will make Facebook its billions, Sandberg continued by saying that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Lawmakers Hear Mixed Reviews of Web Privacy Bill
An online privacy bill introduced in the U.S. Congress this week received mixed reviews at a subcommittee hearing Thursday, with representatives of two trade groups saying the bill would put unnecessary regulations on the Internet advertising industry. The Best Practices Act , introduced Monday by Representative Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democrat, would require websites to get opt-in permission before sharing commonly collected consumer data with partners such as advertising networks, payment processors and Web analytics firms, said Mike Zaneis, vice president for public policy at the Interactive Advertising Bureau. "The ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

For more than a decade, the FTC has engaged in investigation, law enforcement, studies, and other privacy ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Advertising and Privacy
 I recently spent a few months in Britain where I regularly watched BBC television, which is perhaps the last major domain of public space that is free of commercial messages. There is no advertising on BBC radio or television because it is supported entirely by license fees paid by owners of TV sets and radios. When I got home, I found I was struck by the absence of any space free of ads, not only on television but absolutely everywhere. Every conceivable surface seems designed today to carry an encouragement to buy something or to remember a corporate name or logo, from the clothing on our bodies, ...

Facebook Looks Set To Do A U-Turn On Complex Privacy
The social networking giant told BBC News that it was listening to the message from users that it has "made things too complex". "We're working on responding to these concerns," a spokeswoman said. "Watch this space," she added. The change to the options for sharing with websites and applications overwrote the settings I entered a couple weeks ago and turned sharing with third party sites back on. I'm sure when they "simplify" it they will turn everything back on again. I'm growing really tired of their shenanigans. Yup, @SEOMike, you can bet whenever they make a change to privacy "utilities" or TOS, it will ...
Google Mail - Free Email that works and leaves you in control ...
You also forgot to mention that GMail uses colorful labels instead of folders, but they act just the same with the plus of looking like, just that: labels. Add those to the filters, and you get a nice, colorful, organized inbox like I do. Also, GMail allows you to attach email accounts to your primary GMail account. By this, I mean you can give gmail the username and password of any of your other email addies and you can now compose or reply to emails, using any of those accounts in the "From:" field! I can reply as my .edu account, my @gmail account, or my @msn account. Also, my college just transferred all their ...
